What a beautiful day the Lord gave us to play tennis today on Tuesday!
The match started out with prayer by Christopher Murphy. What a splendid job he did! (“Thank You,” Christopher!)
What a nail bitter this match was…After the first 3 matches done, NPC found themselves down 0-3. We played well on those courts, but the South Christian opponents were just a little bit better than NPC. But, that was not the end of the match, by a long stretch!
Brittany Katerberg and Kelly Looman were our first win off the courts with a
6-1,6-3 at # 3 doubles. Next was Sam Soper and Jordan Wynalda with a 6-1 6-4 win at # 5
Doubles. Up came with another win at # 6 doubles, tying the match at 3-3.
Emily Dakoske and Lydia Soper played # 2 doubles. We ran through the 1st
set 6-3 and lost the second set 1-6. Then, they never looked back in the 3rd set tie-breaker and won 10-7, bringing the overall match score to 4-3.
Austin Koeness and Ben Bradley played #1 against a very fine team.. They
lost the first set 4-6, won the next one 6-2, and won the 3rd set 10-7. This whole team match could have gone either way! It was great to watch all of them improve from the last match.
To top off the night, I had several very nice compliments from parents on how nice and pleasant the NPC team was at this match. Thanks goes to the whole team.. Awesome playing and they are a great joy to coach!
